The competition begins with the preparation of the workplace, which must be completed within 5 minutes. After setting the degree of grinding, 4 espressos and 4 cappuccino are prepared and the machine is cleaned.
All work steps are evaluated by a technical jury and the coffees are tasted by a sensory jury.
